101 things in 1001 days - Jan 1st 2008 - Sep 28th 2010

I have read numerous blogs over the times that have aprticipated in this personal challenge. It has always interested me and I think its never really a bad idea to have goals to aspire to.

Apparently it started with this guy here
http://www.triplux.com/default.asp

So basically the rules are:

The Mission
Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.

The Criteria
Tasks must be specific (ie. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (ie. represent some amount of work on my part).

Why 1001 Days?
Many people have created lists in the past - frequently simple goals such as New Year’s resolutions. The key to beating procrastination is to set a deadline that is realistic. 1001 Days (about 2.75 years) is a better period of time than a year, because it allows you several seasons to complete the tasks, which is better for organising and timing some tasks such as overseas trips or outdoor activities.

So I posted it here because I thought I'd find it interesting to challenge myself to do it.

I will be starting a new blog for this challenge and linking it from here.

Anyone care to join me?

OK have now started the blog and got my list up.
Its HERE
Hoping it inspires to make changes in my life and to work towards my goals.

Does anybody know about this site ( http://www.earthlab.com ) ? I have seen other environmental sites with carbon calculators like yahoo and tree huggers, but I am wondering what the deal with earthlab.com is? I saw they also published a list last month of the top ten greenest cities ( http://www.efficientenergy.org/Top-Ten-Green-Cities-in-the-United-States ). Does anyone know if this site is better than the others? Fill me in!

I took their carbon foot print test and it was pretty interesting, they said that I put out 4.5 tons of carbon, does anyone know about any other tests?
